A Recipe For Sanity

Are you worsted in a fight?
Laugh it off.
Are you cheated of your right?
laugh it off.
Don’t make tragedy of trifles,
Don’t shoot butterflies with rifles.
Laugh it off.

Does your work get into kinks?
Laugh it off.
Are you near all sorts of brinks?
Laugh it off.
If it’s sanity you’re after,
There’s no recipe like laughter,
Laugh it off.

~ Henry Rutherford Elliot
